Charities play a crucial role in society, providing support and relief to those who need it most in their darkest hours. It seems almost unthinkable that cybercriminals would target and exploit this sector, however it’s a situation that is becoming increasingly prevalent in the digital world.
Cybercriminals know that charities are often sitting on a treasure trove with a host of valuable information on beneficiaries, supporters and volunteers as well as invoice and payment details. Worryingly, charity data breaches are on the rise with recent figures showing that 26% of charities have experienced a cyber breach in the last six months.
We have teamed-up with IASME for a week-long campaign, lasting from 8th-12th November 2021, to offer registered charities discounted Cyber Essentials certification, with self-assessments costing just £225 + VAT as opposed to the usual £300 + VAT. To take advantage of the offer Tel: 0247 771 7780 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme designed to help organisations protect themselves against the most common threats from cyber-attacks. Being Cyber Essentials certified signals to the public that you take cyber security seriously and can be trusted with personal data and confidential information. The Cyber Essentials scheme covers five core controls, which are:
- Securing your Internet connection
- Securing your devices and software
- Controlling access to your data and services
- Protecting yourself against viruses and other malicious malware
- Keeping your devices and software up to date
In the present digital, post-COVID age, trust and cyber security are interwoven. By achieving Cyber Essentials, a charity can demonstrate commitment to cyber security and protection of customer data.
